Join Solar Oregon for our 4th annual Goal Net Zero Home Tour.  At morning workshops you will learn about the ‘how to’ strategies for getting to Goal Net Zero. In the afternoon join a bus tour of four ultra-efficient Portland homes and residences. Experts will talk about details, materials, and answer questions at the site. Box lunch and bus tour transportation is included.
